Vintage Bicycle Celebrations

Don't you just LOVE vintage items?!?!
I remember my Mom and Dad had a Stereoscope Viewer and I would spend hours looking at these photos of the early 1900's... I clearly remember marveling at a bicycle JUST like this!!
Putting this bike in motion is easy...
Silver 'Leafed' edges add to this Grey card...
It was a BLAST from our last
Over the Rainbow - gold and silver class!
This Feeling Sentimental Stamp set is
stunning and soon to be gone! 
(Did YOU get Yours?!?!  It's FREE with any $50 purchase during Sale~A~Bration which ends on March 22nd!)
Using our Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder and Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog) on this Basic Grey card stock adds a fun texture while contributing to the Antique feel!
Oval it all.. this card is cool - lol.
Celebrate, from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set fits PERFECTLY in the Large oval punch - embossed in Silver it is a rich accent. 
The Oval First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper frames the Stamped Bicycle in Basic Grey ink.. I stamped the First and darkest bike and then continued back stamping with out re-inking.  This is called 'Stamping Off' and give the effect of movement.  The Oval Collection Framelits Dies (Spring Mini) and Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog) lay perfect layered ovals for a nice look!
The Sponge Dauber (Idea Book & Catalog) in a Versa Mark Pad and Silver Embossing Powder (with the help of our Heat Gun) allows this Silver Leaf look to happen - my kids call it magic, lol.  The Grey and Silver add to the vintage look of this card.

Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive layer up each level for depth and dimension.  It also makes it easier to grip the texture of the card stock base.
What do YOU Celebrate?

  1. A beautiful vintage look Jamie. I love the silver leaf look.
    Celebrate is such a versatile sentiment. I use it for birthdays, anniversaries, children winning something at sport/school - lots of occasions.

  2. Love the vintage look of your bicycle in motion. Thanks for joining the LNS group this week.


What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
